Just Met Domanz: Too Buku

I just met domanzI first met domanz some years ago in the Forums' (we had them) intro-section and made him a power-animal. The Power Animal:Today we've met in real life and drank beer. I ate meat loafs and mashed potatoes. Domanz didnt orde...

 
 
 

Forums - I Had Them

Three years I've spent among the Forumites. Gradually, I became one of them. - this is my graphical journal, testimony of the ways of the lost tribes.   PREFACE- a Juxtaposition (aka: stolen from other sources)"Ethnography (from Greek ...

 
 
 

game, what are you talking about? TLOU & ART

I played The Last of Us on the PS3 when it was first published (borrowed it from a friend). I didn't like it that much. I got as far as the first Clicker-encounter outside of town and decided to return it. I wasn't too fond of the cave-syst...

 
 
 

Dtoid's 9th: My 109 French Girls

9 Dtoiders that left an impression. A petty number and a broad term. I am going to cheat...so hard. So very very hard...even 10 times harder. I drew an avatar-name associated freak show. I drew you as one of my French girls. It's one g...

 
 
 

game, what are you doing to me?

Too much nvg-related activity made me neglect the c-blogs for some time now: new line of work, new year, next-gen. My motivation to write during my sparse spare time had reached a spectacular low. Approximately a week ago two isolated ...

 
 
 

game, what are you talking about?

It was the moment of the final confrontation between Kratos and the Hecatoncheir when I realized that what I was watching on the screen was essentially porn: a muscular white man (in shades of gray) rhythmically opens up crevices ...

 
 
 

game, why are you so good?

I watch myself getting older and my backlog getting bigger and bigger. While this happens, the excitement about gaming in general dwindles at an alarming rate. Perhaps not that alarming a rate as I still burn a lot of time in front of the s...

 
 
 

Terraria Terror - a Swan Song

Last night my Utopia - heaven on earth - was destroyed. Terraria got an update. Normally I avoid short entries in the c-blog section. If I deem my contributions too short in quantity I even call them stubs. How humble a person I am. But I a...

 
 
 

Animal Crossing Angst

I have played "Animal Crossing" on the Wii. And I traded it in. Now it came back. Via my 2DS it is sucking and tugging at my soul. I completely forgot about all that sucking and tugging. The great Animal Crossing Angst. "Animal Crossing...

 
 
 

Game City Vienna 2013

I went to a gaming convention. The last time I made this kind of experience, the event took place in a concrete monstrosity somewhere in the outskirts of Vienna. Videogames had to compete with hifi-systems and tv-sets. The only hand-helds t...

 
 
 
 

Why I quit playing games (with my heart)

I think I mentioned it before - this problem I have. I don't finish my games. I can't claim that I never do, because sometimes I do. But mostly I don't. It is not a matter of increasingly limited time, it's more of a general attitude. Durin...

 
 
 

another stub: Data Dealer

Games by Austrian developers are a rare and delicate breed and yet there is some movement beneath that thick eggshell. I am from Austria (wisecrack) and I usually don't care. But when it comes to games the corneal on my thumbs flashes red-w...

 
 
 

Monster Hunter Horror

I like "Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate". It's the first Monster Hunter I have ever tried and I like it. It appeals to my obsessive predisposition in many aspects. It is a complex and at the same time condensed gaming experience. I struggle a bit...

 
 
 

Love: what it is

Love. Do I love videogames? I would have said so without hesitation some hours ago, before I actually started to think about the matter while writing this blog entry. I do like videogames, getting close to borderline obsession if I am t...

 
 
 

asking a favour: Feminism and Videogames

You dear people of Destructoid’s C-Blog! I want to ask a favour of you. It might seem lazy, it might seem clumsy, but I am going to ask anyway. A friend of mine is the editor of a feminist monthly (an Austrian one btw.). They want to dedic...

 
 
 

It is a late intro

I am so incredibly late for this, but the following lines are going to be a kind of introduction. I feel attached enough for this now. The process of writing this down was actually a little bit nauseating since I had to notice a certain deg...

 
 
 
 

Call of Duty: a wish list

You better watch out You better not cry Better not pout I'm telling you why (Christmas noobs) Only a few days left until a large section of the world’s population celebrates the year’s most special and anticipated event: the arrival o...

 
 
 

Destructoid made me do it - yet another stub

When I started posting on Destructoid I used to do some small illustrations, especially Forums-related stuff. In order to illustrate my point or to honor an especially entertaining or inspiring person. May seem like a waste of time and effo...

 
 
 

game inspired paintings - another stub

It is time for a stub again: I did some loosely game-related works several years ago I completely forgot about. Well, I just rescued them from the depths of my hard-drive. They feel a little retro to me but I still believe them to be nea...

 
 
 
 

Play Misty For Me - A Stub

There are many great blogs dealing with issues of morals in games in great and learned ways. ... Personally, I always found sandbox-games to be somewhat unsatisfying. Perhaps I am just too susceptible to all these colourful pictures prom...

 
 
 

Dead or Alive - In Dreams

I had some strange and metaphysical dreams. I don't have the time nor the motivation to make an in-depht-Freudian-dream-interpretation right now, so i just share some visual output triggered off by my recent nightmarish experiences T...

 
 
 

CROSSOVER: Follow The Rainbow

I did not have to think about it, it just sprang up to mind: I want a crossover between Army of Two (EA 2008) and Rainbow Islands.Bubble Bobble 2 (Taito 1987). What I actually thought about for a while now, were the various reasons for p...

 
 
 

The 14 Hours Of Borderlands 2

PTEW! PTEW! Let me tell you about an eventful evening. An evening of unboxing and playing Borderlands 2. An evening of playing Borderlands 2 for 14 hours straight. 15:00 I arrive at my friend`s apartement. He likes to call himself Stevie...

 
 
 

Readers' Review mon Amour

Once upon a time I used to read IGN-reviews, specifically the section "readers' reviews". On the one hand because I believe them to be really informative (in their sum, as a kind of intersection of opinions) and on the other hand because o...

 
 
 

BOSS: a boss is a boss is a boss. boss

I perfected the use of my move-set in training mode and fought a seemingly endless roster of increasingly difficult foes. I have mastered the inherent system of action and reaction, it all makes perfect sense, i am in a state of Flow. Mih...
